Subject: Great,
but short. Peter Green really doesn't play much, which is a pity: he's among my favorites. His amp just ain't loud enough to compete with Garcia's Fender Twin tweakjob.

Pretty overwhelming! See 2/11/70 for a good comparison on how crazy Lovelight got in those days.

Rather than be left out in the cold, scary-beautiful acoustic wasteland of 1/31, why not follow it up with this 45 minutes of 'come-down' insanity?
Reviewer: mishap13 - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - October 31, 2008
Subject: not the longest, but STILL
That honor belongs to another scorcher, 6/6/69 at Fillmore West.

Have had this 45 min cassette for 20 years. I always assumed the second vocalist at about 14 minutes was from Fleetwood Mac. Bobby also adds his pipes at about 36 minutes.

The final comment by one of the announcers after the last notes decay sums it up pretty well....
Reviewer: prof. raphael appleblossom - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - October 21, 2008
Subject: not Peter Green rapping
He was certainly playing guitar on Lovelight, but the American accent of the person rapping alongside Pigpen strongly suggests it wasn't Peter Green.
Reviewer: capn doubledose - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - February 6, 2006
Subject: Longest Lovelight ever?
This has to be. Probably the longest song they ever played as well. Guy rapping in the middle is Peter Green.

Subject: historic
this is an excellent clip of a historic show with good sound. classic pigpen. lovelight is a trip...great filler material. i dug up some info on this show from blairjackson.com.

Out of jail and free on bond, the group played the next night at the Warehouse, and two nights later, in a remarkable show of solidarity, The Dead, Fleetwood Mac and The Flock donated their income from that show to a bust fund. The Warehouse was surrounded by police all three nights, but that didn't stop some fearless and reckless insider from dispensing a large amount of LSD to the crowds on hand and, in the words of Rolling Stone, "the bands blew the lid off the house." A few weeks later, Bill Graham put on a bust benefit show at Winterland featuring the Airplane (who had been busted at the same New Orleans hotel a couple of weeks before the Dead), Quicksilver, Santana and It's A Beautiful Day. After expenses, the show raised $15,000, which was enough to cover the initial legal expenses after the bust.
